All Bugs Good and Bad 2014 Webinar Series

Agricultural Disaster Preparedness and Recovery, Imported Fire Ants, Invasive Species, Bee Health July 13, 2016 Print Friendly and PDF

Please join us for this webinar series for information you can use about good and bad insects.  Topics will include how you can help good insects like bee pollinators and how to control insects we think of as bad, like fire ants, termites, and new invasive insects.  Spiders and ticks aren't actually insects, but we will talk about them too. Webinars will be on the first Friday of each month at 2 p.m. Eastern time.  Click on the title for information on how to connect to the webinar.
